Crazy speculation about a new top star in the Bundesliga!
As the French portal “Foot Mercato” reports, Bayer Leverkusen wants to sign Marcelo (34). Accordingly, the table penultimate made an offer for the Brazilian left-back on Friday!
Marcelo has been a free transfer since this summer. His contract with Real Madrid was not renewed and the Brazilian has been looking for a club ever since. In 15 years, the left-back became an absolute club legend for the royal team. Marcelo, who came to Spain from Fluminense Rio de Janeiro in 2007, played a total of 546 competitive games for Real, scoring 38 goals and providing 103 more assists.
Now the hammer rumor about Leverkusen! Marcelo in the Bundesliga – what’s really going on there?
One thing is clear: After three bankruptcies in the first three games (1: 6 goals), Leverkusen, who started disastrously, could need an experienced stabilizer for the wild defensive line.
But BILD knows: the left-back is currently being offered everywhere in Europe. However, Leverkusen haven’t made an offer for the Brazilian!
In addition, a commitment from Marcelo would not be cheap. The title collector (five times Champions League, six times Spanish champions, five times Spanish cup winners) is free of charge, but most recently earned nine million euros a year at Real. And for the former Brazil international (58 appearances, six goals), a drop in salary is unlikely to be an option…
And: With Mitchel Bakker (22) and Daley Sinkgraven (27), Leverkusen have two left-backs in their squad – and are therefore very well occupied in that position.
That’s why it’s clear: There will be no change of the Brazilian superstar to Leverkusen!
Bayer has to free itself from the table cellar without Marcelo. The first chance to do so is on Saturday (3:30 p.m.) with Mainz, who got off to a strong start and scored seven points from the first three games.
